According to reports, Destiny Kalu was a pupil of Cendom International School but was allegedly beaten by his class teacher in 2013 for not paying his school fees. The boy sustained injury in his right eye and was taken to Ajeromi General Hospital Lagos for treatment.
When the doctors at the hospital could no longer handle his case, they referred him to Lagos State Teaching Hospital(LUTH) where it was confirmed that his eye was permanently damaged. The case was thereafter taken to court by Kalu’s family.

Is it right for children to be flogged by the school authority for nonpayment of school fees?
